DC BLOX, a provider of
interconnected multi-tenant data centers that deliver the infrastructure and
connectivity essential to power today’s digital business, announces it has
initiated construction of its Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina data
center. The data center, designed to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards,
will be the first-of-its-kind multi-tenant data center in South Carolina. The
facility will be capable of protecting Controlled Unclassified Information
(CUI), providing enterprises and government entities throughout South Carolina
access to a highly efficient, secure and interconnected data center – for the
first time in this market. With an initial capacity of 1MW of critical IT load,
the first phase of DC BLOX’s new Greenville data center is set to be
completed by the third quarter of 2021.

DC BLOX
continues to respond to shifts taking shape in the technology landscape,
enabling businesses to digitize and implement distributed IT infrastructure
solutions in areas traditionally underserved. The DC BLOX
Greenville-Spartanburg multi-tenant regional data center delivers on this
promise in both design and connectivity capabilities. When complete, the
Greenville data center will offer access to DC BLOX’s private and redundant
carrier-grade mesh-network connectivity ecosystem interconnecting the company’s
portfolio of data centers throughout the southeast including: Atlanta, GABirmingham, ALChattanooga, TN; and Huntsville, AL.
